hello again everyone, since the last thread garnered a decent amount of interest and i hated turning people down i'm starting a second L5R game. Players unfamiliar with the setting and system are welcome and in fact even people new to rp'ing in general. We'll still be using the third edition unrevised rules.
-Decentish posting rate
-Everyone welcome even if
--You don't know about the setting
--You don't know about the system
--You don't know about rp'ing in general
changes from the last thread and the book
-No skill over 3.
-No heritage rolls (they worked out in the last game, but potential is there for things to go screwy).
-The lechery disadvantage is strongly discouraged. (three leches in the other game)
-One extra weapon free of charge Weapons are expensive and you might not want to use a katana.
-Minor clans members and monks are encouraged.
The character hook is, you've all offended the mantis clan for some reason. Your daimyo has 'loaned' you to the mantis in order to make restitution. You're not important enough to really go to bat for, you see. As for player spots lets say another 4 orso, Tangen is in unless his character is just balls terrible (it won't be). Other than that, people unable to join the last game gain precedence over current players of mine (obviously).
Example of how you could have offended someone say: Hiruma Jotaro was a scout sergeant with a distinguished service record and the respect of his superiors. When drunkenly vomiting over a visiting diplomat and then without thinking laughing about it however, being well thought of is not enough to keep your head. Luckily the mantis did not cry out for blood but just asked for the samurai's services. Whatever they have planned will certainly be quite unpleasant.
Empty character sheet:
Name [clan name]
Strength (if attributes are not equal put just jot it down like here)
Character creation page 88, example thereof page 118
you begin with 45 character points, costs are as follows
Traits: New trait x4: 2 to 3 would be 3x4=12 points
Void: Next rankX4
Skills: New skill: 2 to 3 costs 3
Advantages and disadvantages: 10 points of disadvantages max
Your insight shouldn't go over 149 points.
edit 2: One extra weapon free of charge Weapons are expensive and you might not want to use a katana.
You know who I fucking hate? Pony.
I don't know why, I just felt the need to say that.
